Acupuncture for seasonal allergy relief

  • Significant relief

  • Without side effects

  • Proven effective by research and practice



With spring's sunshine and flowers come wind and pollen, which for many people signals the onset of allergy season. Tree pollens are the most prevalent pollens in the spring and many trees are prolific pollinators. Grass and weed pollens follow in late spring and summer, and airborne mold spores can be found almost year round, as well as other common allergens such as dust, dust mites, and animal dander. All told, between 10 percent and 20 percent of the general population is believed to have some form of allergic rhinitis, with direct and indirect health care costs totaling between $4.5 and $7.7 billion per year in the U.S. alone.


While many over-the-counter remedies promise symptomatic relief, practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) address the causes of allergies, treating the whole person, and focusing on balancing the immune system leads to substantial long-term health benefits in managing allergies. It feels like magic, because there is no side effects. Usually the symptons get relieved right away.
